Corporate Tax Registration in the UAE: A Guide to Deadlines

The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has announced revised deadlines for corporate tax registration. This initiative, part of the FTA’s ongoing taxpayer awareness campaign, aims to ensure resident juridical persons established before March 1, 2024, comply with their corporate tax obligations.

Registration deadlines are determined by the date a juridical person’s license was issued. The FTA clarifies that companies with licenses issued in January or February, regardless of the year, must register for corporate tax by May 31, 2024.

For entities lacking a license on March 1, 2024, a three-month grace period applies. These entities must register for corporate tax by May 31, 2024, to remain compliant.

The FTA has established a comprehensive registration schedule based on license issuance month:

  • March-April issuance: Deadline June 30, 2024
  • May issuance: Deadline July 31, 2024
  • June issuance: Deadline August 31, 2024
  • July issuance: Deadline September 30, 2024
  • August-September issuance: Deadline October 31, 2024
  • October-November issuance: Deadline November 30, 2024
  • December issuance: Deadline December 31, 2024
